Image result for new US CongressIn the new US Congress, most of the representatives who graduated from Jesuit-run colleges and universities are strongly in favor of legal abortion, according to a study by Matthew Archbold of the Cardinal Newman Society.

Analyzing voting records by the criteria furnished by the National Right to Life Committe, Archbold found that among the 12 Jesuit-educated members of the Senate, only two are reliable pro-life votes, while two others have mixed voting records and the remaining eight were consistently in favor of legal abortion. 

In the House of Representatives, 12 of the 44 Jesuit alumni are consistently pro-life; most of the others voted consistently for legal abortion, although several had mixed voting records.
